New Twist as Rift Valley Party Hints Dumping Handshake Team for William Ruto

President Uhuru Kenyatta's and Raila Odinga's camp has again suffered a blow after the newly created Rift Valley-based political party hinted at working with deputy president William Ruto. Taking to her Facebook page, Chama Ya Mapatano party leader Damaris Too said she is considering supporting Ruto.

Damaris has been vocally opposing the DP and supporting the handshake team, she now says after listening to her people she is considering abandoning the team. She went to further reveal that her people like William Ruto.

"At this rate... I might just be waking up and shouting WSR... Yani my home wants Wiliam... Na sio tafadhali," Too said.

Her sentiments come as Raila and Ruto show to be the two topmost contenders in the 2022 general election. Their support across the country is paramount. 

Damaris comes from Nandi county a region believed to be Ruto's political bedrock, even so Raila Odinga on his part is trying hard to make inroads into the Rift Valley. He was in Nakuru county today where he toured several areas after attending a church service in Naivasha. Ruto on his part today toured North Eastern Kenya.

Musalia Mudvadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Mukhisa Kituyi are among those who have shown interest in the top seat come 2022.
